Entering new territories of the physical realm, ANE returns with an EP and accompanying remix collection from Crosspolar.

The Bristol-based artist harnesses the once hyperreal aesthetics of computer simulations from the 90s to early 00s in dreamlike odes to distorted cyberspace memories. This release comes as a limited edition of floppy disk packs containing two recycled disks, one of originals and one of variations.

An upbringing in Finland during the 90s serves as a catalyst for the inspirations for these sprawling, cinematic ambient tracks. Repurposed rompler instruments and high sheen sound design represent lost dreams of the future. Sugar sweet rave euphoria is met with icy desolation. Crosspolar plunders his childhood fascinations to create this not so uncanny valley: keygen music, click-to-discover online worlds, 90s television, and turn of the millennium tech. These tracks accelerate at blistering pace whilst always looking backwards.
